‘‘...imbued with noble history...set in a dramatic and varied landscape...’’

Take a beautiful Peak District National Park setting, just 3½ miles from Bakewell, add a historic hall (first recorded in the Domesday Book), and an ancient cluster of listed buildings converted to form superb holiday cottage accommodation....and the result is the captivating blend that is Harthill Hall. Nestling in 14 acres of grounds on an upland called Priest’s Hill with excellent walking available from the doorstep, the properties have the use of an extensive range of leisure facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, solarium and treatment rooms. Noble names have woven the threads of the hall’s long history including Henry de Ferrers, the Cokaynes and the Harthills. Henry VIII is also believed to have stayed at the hall.
It was here in 1259 that Sir Richard de Hartle was issued a Papal Bull by Pope Alexander II, allowing him to appoint his own chaplain. The chapel ceased its functions as a place of worship in 1546 and now takes the form of The Chapel and Hartle Cottage. The eight cottages are furnished with antiques and surround a medieval cobbled courtyard. They all retain a wealth of original features including thick stone walls, large oak beams, mullion windows and flagstone floors. Derbyshire’s bustling market towns, villages, hills, dales and rivers offer majestic scenery, and a rich variety of customs. Boasting a varied and beautiful landscape, they offer a blend of heritage, history and family attractions. The beautiful market town of Bakewell (3½ miles) is situated on the River Wye, crossed by a 13th-century five-arched bridge which has coffee shops and restaurants. Within easy reach are Matlock, Hall Leys Park, Chesterfield, Alfreton and Buxton. National Trust properties and gardens nearby include Riley Graves, Longshaw, Mam Tor, South Peak, Dovedale, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston Hall. Close by are both Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. Games room with free wireless internet connection (1gb per day per device). Golf and horse riding are available within 5 miles. Shop 3½ miles, pub 1 mile.

Living room/kitchen with tiled floor and beams. Spacious dining room with double sofa bed (for +2), chandelier, dining table (converts to ¾-size billiard table), tiled floor and beams.

    A charming cottage with hot tub and snooker table. But a little bit more rough around the edges than I expected in terms of the quality of the bedrooms and bathrooms. It is good value for money for a big group and a great place for a fun trip away with friends, but their overall approach to customer service could be improved. We found the tone of the arrival instructions and overall communication unwelcoming. Constant written reminders displayed in the cottage stating that if you break anything that you will need to pay for it is not necessary (leave that for the detailed instructions for using the property). A friendlier approach goes a long way and allows your customers to feel relaxed and at home. The property is also advertised for 10 people but it is a real squeeze to comfortably sleep 10 adults, with some of the beds including bunk beds and sofa beds. Probably more a cottage for 8.

    Lovely cottage with the added bonus of a hot tub which was amazing to sit in with the views :-)

    The hot tub was great as was the use of the swimming pool and sauna. Spacious and comfortable, the only thing not so good is that to get 10 people in you need to use the sofa bed in the dining room. But in a beautiful location, we had a great weekend away.

    Very good overall. The mattresses could do with replacing as they are a bit lumpy but it was a lovely weekend.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Cokaynes. Some good news, we have just received delivery of our new mattresses and lovely toppers too so no more lumpy beds, fit for a princess now.
